Are You Ready For CHANGE This Ramadan?

ramadan 2012 Greeting Cards_TopIslamicWallpapers_dot_com

For Muslims, Ramadan is the prime time for change. This intense, one-month boot camp dramatically alters our routines and schedules. From tight sleep schedules, to starvation for extended hours, to reduction in consumption of junk foods, to a technology diet, to withdrawal from caffeine addiction, to lengthy standing in Tarawih prayers at night, to extensive listening to the Quran. What a change indeed!

Beyond Routines And Rituals

The real change, however, Ramadan demands of us is the internal change – a change that positively transforms our lifestyle, character, attitudes, conversations, and habits. Allah has described this change in the month of Ramadan as follows: “so you may exercise self-restraint (Taqwa)” [Quran 2:183].

Slavery To Ramadan?

If our change is limited to outer physical practices only, we become slaves to Ramadan, instead of being servants to Ar-Rahman (Allah, the Merciful).

Prophet Muhammad has warned us about those who don’t fast from bad behavior: “Allah has no interest in any person’s abstention from eating and drinking, if that person does not give up lying and dishonest actions” [narrated by Abu Hurrah in Sahih al-Bukhari, Vol. 3, #127].

Ramadan Resolutions

Every Ramadan we make resolutions and tell ourselves: “This Ramadan will be different. I’m going to change my ______ habit.” “I will give up ………”, “I will take my practice of Islam to the next level”. But how many of us are really able to follow through? Plenty of good intentions, many amazing wishes, but sadly enough, life goes on as usual the morning of Eid.
Are you ready to take that first step to transform your bad habits into good ones?

Ramadan offers a perfect and natural environment for moral training. Interestingly, researches from “positive psychology” (scientific study of successful people) have repeatedly shown it takes 30 days to kick a bad habit and develop a new one.

In addition to the physical discipline in the 30-day boot camp of Ramadan, the increased spiritual exercise and connection with Allah, can transform your habits for life.
Try these proven techniques for a successful positive change in your habits (during Ramadan and beyond!):
1. Acknowledge and identify your bad habits

First step is to admit you need to change. If you are in a state of denial, you won’t recognize that you have a bad habit to change.
2. Pick a habit for 30 days

Prioritize your bad habits and focus on one for 30 days. Take a 30-day trial to re-condition your habits. If you are committed to changing at least one habit, you will see remarkable results, God-willing.
3. Realize that it’s in us to change

Don’t believe the old saying, “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks.” You can break a bad habit if you really want to. No one else can change your habits, if you don’t want to.
4. Plan to change

“If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.” A healthy process of change in character requires a gradual pace, which entails planning. Develop concrete milestones to measure your progress. “Beware of Allah wherever you may be; follow up an evil deed with a good one which will wipe (the former) out, and behave good-naturedly towards people.” [Al-Tirmidhi relates it, saying: It is a good (hasan) Tradition. In some copies he says: It is a good and genuine (hasan and sahih) Hadith.]

5. Replace a bad habit with a good one

Completely eliminating a habit is more challenging than replacing it with a more productive habit. Moreover, it’s crucial to replace the lost natural needs, such as the need to socialize and to be entertained with something healthy.Interestingly, Prophet Muhammad, the greatest ‘psychologist’ of humanity, illustrated this principle in these words:
6. Change your environment

Resist the negative peer pressure by finding a better company of friends. Collective action to change is very powerful. Prophet Muhammad explained this peer pressure effect with this analogy: “A good friend and a bad friend are like a perfume-seller and a blacksmith: The perfume-seller might give you some perfume as a gift, or you might buy some from him, or at least you might smell its fragrance. As for the blacksmith, he might singe your clothes, and at the very least you will breathe in the fumes of the furnace.” [Sahih al-Bukhari Volume 3, Hadith 314; & Muslim]
7. Exercise (physical and spiritual)

A habit of regular physical exercise is obviously important for lasting weight loss. But you may not realize that exercise helps in eliminating a number of bad habits. For example, among smokers who become competitive runners, for example, over 80% give up smoking.Moreover, exercising your will power (struggle to fight temptations) for 30 days helps you kick all kinds of bad habits and form new good ones. Willpower is like a muscle; the more you exercise it, the more you strengthen it.
8. Think of yourself as a changed, different, new person

This simple psychological shift in your thinking about your own image can do wonders. Tell yourself, “I can’t continue this ill-behavior. I am better than that. I am stronger. I am wiser.”
9. Reward success

The most fundamental law in all of psychology is the “law of effect”, which simply states that actions followed by rewards are strengthened and likely to recur. Unfortunately, studies show that people rarely use this technique when trying to change personal habits.Setting up formal or informal rewards for success greatly increases your chances of transforming bad habits into good ones, and is far more effective than punishing yourself for bad habits or setbacks. As Muslims we should also remember that the ultimate reward is Allah’s Pleasure and Paradise in the Hereafter.
10. Schedule or limit your bad habits

If you are really struggling to kick a bad habit, try limiting the habit to a specific time and place. Research and case studies confirm that this rather unconventional approach can be a useful first step in changing bad habits or learning new good ones.
11. Tell someone about your effort to change if it helps

He or she may keep you on track. Shura, which means regular consultation and constructive feedback in any group environment (family, work place, and leadership), is one of the tools that the Companions of the Prophet used for their own improvement.
12. Remember, Allah loves those who commit mistakes and repent

Prophet Muhammad said:“By Him in Whose Hand is my life, if you were not to commit sin, Allah would sweep you out of existence and He would replace (you by) those people who would commit sin and seek forgiveness from Allah, and He would have pardoned them.” [Sahih Muslim]
13. Resolve to continue on and follow up

Giving up bad habits or learning good habits requires regular maintenance and determination. It is a long, ongoing process, also known as “Tazkiyya” in Islamic terminology. It’s more difficult than the first few steps of change. (“How many times have I dieted, for example, only to gain the weight back?”)
14. Remind yourself of death and hereafter often

“Remember often the terminator (or destroyer) of all the pleasures [i.e. death],” the Prophet once stated. [at-Tirmidhi.]
15. Develop a relapse strategy

How do you ensure not to return to your bad habit you are trying to change? Some people donate money to a good cause every time they return to sinning or a bad habit. This reminds them of the ‘cost’ of going back to old bad habits. Others try physically demanding acts to deter them from reverting to old ways.
16. Allah will help you change

Last but not least, make Asking for Allah’s Help an integral part of the overall change process. Ask for Allah’s guidance before, during and after every attempt at kicking a bad habit. Allah is Ever-Willing to respond to your needs; but it is you who must take the first step towards Him.

The Prophet told his close companion:

“By Allah! Whoever gives up something for the sake of Allah, Allah will replace it with something better than it!”

10 Ways To Live Islam Daily

1) Purify your intentions and remember that you wish to seek the pleasure of Allah:  Sincerity in all we do is a commandment of Allah  says:

قُلْ إِنَّ صَلَاتِي وَنُسُكِي وَمَحْيَايَ وَمَمَاتِي لِلَّهِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ  لَا شَرِيكَ لَهُ ۖ وَبِذَ‌ٰلِكَ أُمِرْتُ وَأَنَا أَوَّلُ الْمُسْلِمِينَ

“Say, ‘Indeed my prayer, my rites of sacrifice, my living and my dying are for Allah, Lord of the worlds. No partner has He. And this I have been commanded, and I am the first (among you) of the Muslims.” (Surah al-An’aam, 6:162,163).
Allah says :

إِنَّا أَنْزَلْنَا إِلَيْكَ الْكِتَابَ بِالْحَقِّ فَاعْبُدِ اللَّهَ مُخْلِصًا لَهُ الدِّينَ   أَلَا لِلَّهِ الدِّينُ الْخَالِصُ ۚ وَالَّذِينَ اتَّخَذُوا مِنْ دُونِهِ أَوْلِيَاءَ مَا نَعْبُدُهُمْ إِلَّا لِيُقَرِّبُونَا إِلَى اللَّهِ زُلْفَىٰ إِنَّ اللَّهَ يَحْكُمُ بَيْنَهُمْ فِي مَا هُمْ فِيهِ يَخْتَلِفُونَ ۗ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يَهْدِي مَنْ هُوَ كَاذِبٌ كَفَّارٌ

“So worship Allah (alone) by doing religious deeds sincerely for Allah’s sake only, (and not to show-off and not to set up rivals with Him in worship). Surely, the religion (i.e. the worship and the obedience) is for Allah only.” (Surah Az-Zumar 39:2-3).
Ibn Al-Qayyim said, “Deeds without sincerity are like a traveler who carries in his water-jug dirt. The carrying of it burdens him and it brings no benefit.”

2) Seek Allah’s help through du’a:  Allah has told His Messenger (SAW) that He is close and answers the supplication of any servant who calls to Him. He said:

وَإِذَا سَأَلَكَ عِبَادِي عَنِّي فَإِنِّي قَرِيبٌ ۖ أُجِيبُ دَعْوَةَ الدَّاعِ إِذَا دَعَانِ ۖ فَلْيَسْتَجِيبُوا لِي وَلْيُؤْمِنُوا بِي لَعَلَّهُمْ يَرْشُدُونَ

“When My servants ask thee concerning Me, I am indeed close (to them), I respond to the prayer of every supplicant when he calleth on Me.” (Surah Al-Baqarah, 2:186).

3) Do not procrastinate: It is easier for one to put off a goal until tomorrow so that one can rationalize not disciplining oneself today. How often have we said, “Insha’Allah, I will make a change tomorrow” but never actually get around to doing it? One of the early scholars said, “Beware of procrastinating. It is the greatest of the soldiers of Shaytaan.” Do not make half-hearted promises – you are fooling no one but yourself. Carry out your resolutions with zeal and optimism.

4) Take baby steps and set realistic goals in our zeal: We often chart ambitious plans only to be discouraged when we cannot sustain our efforts. Remember that no good deed is to small  Rasulullah (SAW) was asked, “Which deed is most beloved to Allah?” He said, “The one that is continuous, even if it is little.” (Sahih al-Bukhari).
Small changes work a great deal better than giant leaps, so don’t bite off more than you can chew. Start out with small deeds and you that you can accomplish easily and consistently before moving on to more challenging ones. This will motivate you and make you feel more successful. Insha’Allah, you will find that over time, you will have made a big difference.

5) Build a good support system:  Ibn Hazm said, “Anyone who criticizes you cares about your friendship. Anyone who makes light of your faults cares nothing about you.” It is said that reminders benefit the believers, so surround yourselves with good companions who will give you sincere advice and who will support you with your resolutions. Avoid those who will chip away at your self-esteem or who will tempt you away from your resolutions. Bear in mind what, ‘Ali (RA)  said: “Mix with the noble people, you become one of them; and keep away from evil people to protect yourself from their evils.”

6) Tract your progress and be consistent: Write down your goals – hang this list up on the wall, keep it in your notebook, fold in into your wallet or stick it in your locker. You can even keep a log or journal of how you are doing – start a weblong even! Be honest with yourself and recheck your goals. The idea is not to slacker. Indeed, when Rasulullah (SAW) did something, he kept it up. (Muslim). Take a look at the Hadit in which Allah says: “………’My slave keeps drawing nearer to me with naafil (supererogatory) deeds until I love him.” (Sahih al-Bukhari)
The phrase maa yazaalu (“keeps drawing near)” gives the impression of continuity.

7) Avoid burnout:  It is inevitable that we sometimes feel as if our iman has hit rock bottom or that we lack the spirit to continue in our striving. Rasulullah (SAW) said, “Iman wears out in one’s heart, just as the dress wears out (becomes thin). Therefore, ask Allah to renew iman in your hearts.” (At-Tabarani). Continuing to do acts of worship and good deeds does not mean one exhausts oneself to breaking point. We continue with the obligatory acts. When we have the energy and inclination, we strive to do more and when we do not, we do as much as we can. Rasulullah (SAW) said: “Religion is very easy and whoever overburdens himself in his religion will not be able to continue in that way. So you should not be extremists, but try to be near to perfection” (Sahih al-Bukhari) According to another report, Rasulullah (SAW) said: “Be moderate, and you will reach what you want.” (Sahih al-Bukhar).

8) Seek inspiration: The best sources of inspiration are in the mighty Qur’an, Rasulullah (SAW), his companions, the pious predecessors and the scholars. Amir ibn Abdullah who was once asked, “How can you tolerate being awake all night, and thirsty in the intense heat of the day?” He replied, “Is it anything more than postponing the food of the day to nighttime, and the sleep of the night to daytime? This is not a big matter.” When the night came, he would say, “Remembrance of the heat of hell fire has taken sleepiness from me.” And he would not sleep until dawn.

9) Do a variety of acts of worship:  Allah in His Infinite Mercy has blessed us with a variety of acts of worship to do ,some are physical such as prayer; some are financial such as Zakah and sadaqa; some are spoken such as du’aa and dhikr. Perhaps the wisdom behind this provision is that it addresses the different inclinations and abilities of the people. Some people may enjoy some kinds of worship more than others. Indeed, Allah has made gates of Paradise according to the different types of worship. Abu Hurairah (RA) says Rasulullah (SAW) said: “Whoever spends on a pair for the sake of Allah will be called from the gates of Paradise, ‘O slave of Allah, this is good.’ Whoever is one of the people of prayer will be called from the gate of prayer. Whoever is one of the people of jihad will be called from the gate of jihad. Whoever is one of the people of fasting will be called from the gate of al Rayyan. Whoever is one of the people of charity will be called from the gate of charity.” (Sahih al-Bukhari).

10) Do not waste even a minute: As mentioned earlier, there are a variety of deeds one can do. There may be days when one is busy with chores, work or commitments to family and friends. This does not mean that one does not have time to incorporate one’s resolution to live Islam daily. One can make dhikr while cooking, one can memorize a du’aa while waiting for the bus, one can listen to an Islamic lecture when driving home from work….. the list goes on. The bottom line? Do what you can when you can.
